It's T-shirt time!

The cabs are here and the Jersey Shore cast is ready to GTL to the max. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation premiered on Thursday and it was as if no time has passed since we last hung out with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

The crew reunited in Miami for the revival and ET is rounding up the most memorable moments from the first episode.

The Gals Return to the Shore Store

Snooki, JWoww and Deena made fans nostalgic when they returned to the famous Jersey Shore T-shirt store and met up with owner Danny Merk to get custom shirts for everyone.

The Situation's Last Minute Court Date

Mike was forced to cancel his trip to Miami and head to court to deal with his tax evasion charge. Snooki put it best, "Dude, prison is no joke. Orange Is the New Black, I saw that sh*t. It's scary."

Though after pleading guilty, he was able to make an appearance and reunite with his best party pals. He even helped them out by being DD.

The Disturbing Sammi "Sweatheart" Giancola Doll

Sammi opted to not return to the revival, following her sticky breakup with Ronnie -- but she was there in spirit. Things got weird when the guys pulled out a creepy doll that they dressed as Sammi and also recited her memorable quotes.

The Return of Their Famous Catch Phrase

In the age of Ubers and Lyfts, "Cabs are here" will always have a special place in our hearts. As the crew set out for their first night out at the club, Pauly belts out what we've been waiting to hear:

Drunk Snooki Is Back

"Snooki can still turn the f**k up," Vinny says after Snooki has one too many drinks and falls down on the dance floor. "And she's down" Pauly shouts. They end up going home because she can barely stand up straight, but the night doesn’t end there.

Bye Fist Pump, Hello Kick the Door

Fist pumping was all the range in 2009, but now it's all about kicking down the door. Thanks to Vinny, a new dance craze is about to take over every dance floor in America.

"I start pounding on the door and as soon as the beat drops, I kick the door open and I start going in there like a madman," Vinny explains.

Deena and Ronnie Get Emotional

Following the death of Deena's father, everyone reached out except Ron. Deena broke down when she called out her friend for not calling her during the heartbreaking time.

"You come up to me and you tell me you're sorry because you knew my dad," Deena exclaimed, adding that it hurt her.

"I made a mistake by not reaching out," Ron later shares. "I'm sorry I couldn't be there. At that point in my life, I was not mentally, physically stable… I should’ve been there for you, I'm sorry." The two ultimately put the past behind them and start fresh.

Snooki Misses Her Kids, Vinny Misses His Dog

This time around a handful of them have kids, including Snooki who teared up at lunch expressing that she misses her two kids, daughter Giovanna and son Lorenzo. Her tears also got to JWoww, who also shared that this had been the longest she had been away from her two kids.

Meanwhile, Vinny, who "can't relate," jokingly added that he missed his pet.

Snooki Loses Her Wedding Ring

Just when there was a moment of stability, Snooki ends up losing her huge diamond ring and goes hysterical shouting that she wants to go home. Using the famous duck phone, she calls someone and tells them that her husband, Jionni LaValle, was going to kill her as the first episode comes to a conclusion.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. For ET's exclusive interviews with the cast, watch below.
